First post here.
I may need a static IP address for 2 reasons.
1.) I sometimes need to dial in remotely to my home PC. As the IP address lease changes often, it's a pain to know what IP address I am dialing in too
2.) My employer sometimes needs me to speak to them via VOIP using a Nortel BCM 50, which requires a static IP address at both ends.
Yes, before some wiso tells me Sky Broadband is for domestic use only, I am aware of that. But What I need to know is will Sky provide a static IP address or am I likely to meet a "brick wall" of unhelpfulness?

Re: Static IP
I doubt you'd meet a brick wall of any sort other than the one which states that you don't get a static IP with Sky and that they can't provide one either - it's not them being unhelpful, but rather a matter of fact. You could try services such as those offered here, https://www.dyndns.com/

Re: Static IP
No, you said that, not me. Your boss could only make use of a BT static IP on a BT provided connection. I suggested you try a service such as DynDNS or look for a similar one, it's the only answer other than switching to a provider who does offer a static address.
